Lyrics

Did you know I had a friend,
A lovely, lovely little friend.
Did you know I had a friend,
Who was just a clone?

I met him when he saved my life.
When he saved my life, there was so much strife.
I met him when he saved my life
But he was just a clone.

He had the same face
As all his other friends.
He had the same voice
And I did not know when

He would return and give me his face.
Because, I had no face of my own.
I needed, yes, a good clone face
For I had no face of my own.

And that good clone, oh yes,
That good, good clone,
He had some faces to spare.

Because he collected the faces
And sometimes the heads
Of his fallen friends
When they wound up dead.

The faces came right off,
Because he used a special knife.
He just cut their heads right off
And he kept their faces nice,
Safe and sound in jars like that.
Sometimes mounted on plaques
And other things like that.

So he has all these faces
And he does not do
Fancy things with them
Because, like I said

They’re just like his own face
Captured and perhaps grotesque
They’re just like his own face.
So, I think he might give me one,

So, I said: Please give me a face,
Because I lost mine
When those evil people
stormed here and sliced me.

Please give me a face.
I know you have more
And I just need a nose or two.
Please, please, you’ve such a pretty face,

And I know you’ve lots to spare.
The war cost me my only face,
And I’d like to use one of yours.
I’d like to use one of yours.
